# 1 Why pick a faction?
04-25-2013, 07:52 AM
I don't understand why the faction you don't pick is your enemy. Does this mean that when i go to New Romulus i will be attacked by the same people that offered to help? Or perhaps this is the only place i am not attacked. This does not make any sense to me. Please explain your madness.

I don't know why they said they are your enemy besides for PVP reasons... I mean there are Klingons all over New Romulus.

That'll only happen in PvP. Basically concider yourself a diplomat to your ally, not a full fledged combatant unless you want to be (ie PvP).

In laymen's terms, the devs either were too lazy, or simply didn't have the time, to flesh out PvPvP and/or create C-Store console ships equivelent to the numbers that the KDF and Feds do, so they came up with this solution.

Is it the greatest, no, but its something you have to live with.

And no, you can't get around it. You're pretty much forced to pick an ally if you want to do anything but fly around Tae Dewa in your starter ship.

And apparently, if you pick KDF, the cargo ships in the Sirius sector are also your enemies.

Meh, they should have dropped the whole enemy part from the start and put PvP into the holodeck and military war games. As it stands now they are both enemies and allies against the Borg, Tal Shiar and Iconians. Most alliances would start with a cease-fire.... Adding Romulans on both sides doesn't make it any crazier.

Yep, the KDF/Fed war is the strangest one in history.

Quoted for truth.

Klingon to Fed: "Didn't I kill you yesterday"

Fed to Klingon "yes, but I was only mostly dead"

klingon to Fed "Ah yes mostly dead, do they give you the chocolate pill too"

Fed to Klingon "Wait you get the cure in pill form? Meh, never mind lets go kill Borg/Tholians/Dominon"

Klingon to Fed "Yes, and tomorrow I can kill you again."

Gecko explains it at length in the podcastugc interview why.
Factions separate player bases, they don''t want to separate the player even more then it already is.
A new faction brings in more players, but see point it.
More people like to play the hero then the bad guys.
It is a business decision in the first place.
Also the reason why we don''t get 3 faction pvp either.


I wonder if they did away entirely with the factions, give everyone a homeworld, and something like a notorious rating. Then you can have pve with everyone doing the same stuff, plus extra stories based on where they come from. and for pvp you have good guys, low notoriety, vs bad guys, high notoriety.
And you cut finally drop that stupid fed/kdf war that never made sense in the first place and pretty much only exists in dialog.
